For bridal showers or other special occasions, I often triple the recipe for these moist scones. You can try blueberries instead of chocolate chips and almonds. Or cut the dough into strips like biscotti, bake them and dip them into coffee.

"I have not tried this yet, but I plan to use the same amount of buttermilk instead of heavy cream. I think it will work fine. I keep powdered buttermilk on hand for baking, so I can mix the amount I need."
